We booked the Tontine Hotel as a weekend stop over on our way to the Lake District as we had never visited Ironbridge, we though the location of the Tontine would suit us for touring the area unfortunately we didn't read the tripadvisor reviews before booking. From the outside The Tontine Hotel looked okay, but once through the front door...

A very tired hotel seriously lacking some TLC. Indifferent staff(at best), basic amenities and below par breakfast in a hotel occupying the best location in Ironbridge. Really disappointing. This place isn't even trying. The room was rather moth eaten and didn't feel clean. Being above a pub too caused the stale smoky and alcohol smells to drift up to the...

The location of this hotel is great. The view from our room looked directly across the Ironbridge. Our room was clean and tidy with 2 singles and a double bed in it. The bathroom was well stocked with soap and shampoo etc. The menu in the restaurant was very limited and we ended up using other local eateries. Breakfast was...

We thought we'd have a pint there as it had the best views of the bridge, we had wondered why the pub was empty, we soon realised it was because the barmaid was an unfriendly girl without any personality, we tried to engage her in a bit of conversation, we just looked at us confused.....I suggest they find friendlier staff!

Outside this looks great! Inside ground floor is tidy and ok, but bar staff are not friendly, menu is limited and everything is painted a depressing green! This in an Enterprise Inn, and it's about time they spent some of their colossal rents on restoring this Hotel. The building is in a gem of a spot, and should be the...

We booked this hotel mainly for it's location and price. Having read some reviews we were a little dubious but decided to stay anyway (two nights). Our initial impression upon arrival was that we had made a big mistake but we proceeded to check in and were handed our room key and parking permit by a friendly, helpful member of...

Recently spent 2 nights at the Tontine. Was in room 8, the second floor per the English (third for the US). Great view out the window of the iron bridge directly across the street. While the room was not fancy, I was happy with it. I arrived on a Bank Holiday Monday so traffic and parking in the town was...

Just returned from a one night stay here. Firstly location excellent. Couldn't really be better. Plus parking is via a few permit so again excellent. Reception welcoming so again no complaints. However I couldn't award this hotel 4 stars which is 'very good' as it's very run down. It's a really old building the exterior looks ok but inside its...
